Every Night's A Promise

from Long Lost / A History Of Iniquity by The Chairman Dances

/

lyrics

My little girl sits wondering
Just what the darkness holds,
And the little story I told
To help her fall asleep;
To help her soul to keep
And file the nighttime’s teeth.

Oh child, every night’s a promise
Of a silver light the dawn will bring.

My wife and I sit sober
On the covers of the bed.
We dress our fear in silence
And watch the news till 10.
Come 12 you won’t forget
The bills, our crushing debt.

Oh lover, every star’s a glimpse
Of a wealth that’s sure to come.
Lord, let it come.
